Emilio Pucci, the man behind the iconic Pucci print, got his start in fashion rather humbly: by making clothes for the ski team at Reed College in Oregon. In 1949 a <i>Harper’s Bazaar</i> photographer took note of Pucci's designs on the slopes, and the rest is history. The Pucci name is synonymous with wild, kaleidoscopic prints, bold color combinations, and flowing, beautifully cut fabrics. The power of Pucci’s trademark sensual, madly pulsating designs is harnessed by simple shapes and perfectly placed seams. Celebrities and jet-setters adore Pucci’s dresses, scarves, sunglasses, and shoes: Sophia Loren, Kylie Minogue and Madonna are loyal brand ambassadors, Jackie Kennedy was a fan, and Marilyn Monroe was buried in a favorite pale-green Pucci dress. Today the Pucci empire includes swimwear, home décor, perfume and men's accessories, providing a plethora of options for tastemakers with an eye for audacious design.
